Football For All

Founded as the Young Elizabethan league, and now affectionately known as the YEL, our mission is to create opportunities for boys and girls to enjoy the game at every level.

FA WHOLE GAME SYSTEM (WGS) PLAYER PHOTO REQUIREMENT


We need a good, clear, head and shoulders, portrait image, where the player’s head is at least half the height of the picture. Please ensure your images match what is required to avoid rejection.
